I just got my new SmartThings hub and a leak detector sensor. Reading the manual, I see on the “Simple Setup” page this wording: “The SmartThings Hub works best if installed in a central location to where your SmartThings will be connected” . Fair enough - not really practical since the hub has to be hardwired (ethernet cable) and most people aren’t going to have a centrally located ethernet switch, but let’s not dwell on that one! The next sentence is “The recommended separation distance from the user for this equipment is 7.6 inches (20 cm)”. What ON EARTH is this telling me?! What is ‘the user’ in this context?
Is this telling me I need to have things within 7.6" for them to work? Can’t possibly mean that. Is it telling me that for safety/radiation concerns I should locate the device at least 7.6" away from a human being? I mean, there really isn’t any context provided in that paragraph!
I decided to ignore this sentence and forge ahead, and got everything working despite my various devices being 20+ feet away … so I’m all set; I just can’t make sense out of that sentence!
By the way, I found another topic similar to this but for the life of me could not find it when I came back to look for it. This forum software is different from any forum software I’ve ever used before. Sure looks sexy and different … but I think I’d prefer a simple vbulletin type environment! I’m sure I’ll get used to it
